Hello, I'm doing a bunch of maintenance on my '64 this winter and have reached the point of dealing with the drum brakes. The shoes appear to have about half their life left, and I'm thinking I'll...

Cruise-O-Matic to C-6

Hello,


Any and all thoughts on swapping a C-6 trans out of a '67 Galaxie into my '64 Galaxie, replacing the Cruise-o-Matic that is currently in it. It's original and seems a bit tired, and I'm...

Re: 352 to a Stroker

Thanks, the info you've already provided has been huge. I've probably owned 6 F250's over the years, all early seventies. They all had FE motors and I kept them running pretty good. Had no idea...

Re: 352 to a Stroker

Barnett, here's your answers:

1. Mild to moderate. I want someone to wonder a bit what's under the hood.
2. No shake
3. In between, although most of the driving this car does is highway....

Re: 352 to a Stroker

Barnett, are there any concerns I need to be aware of in regard to push rod length with the cam you are suggesting? As to the intake, I was thinking of one made by Blue Thunder that Barry mentioned...

Re: 352 to a Stroker

Thanks Barnett, I'll add your info to my research. Not sure what the gear ratio currently is in the car, but I'll make it a point to check as I put my plan together.

Re: 352 to a Stroker

Thanks, after reading Barry's book I was thinking Edelbrock heads as well. In my other research on 352 heads the only thing I could find beyond ordinary was in the 352HP, built in '60, I believe. ...

Re: 352 to a Stroker

How about the 352 heads, are they worth a rebuild?

Re: Please post your ride height pics :: 63 1/2 Fastback

Thanks Norm,

I'll check e-bay again. I lost out on a set a couple of weeks ago, and there weren't any like that prior to my last post.

Re: Please post your ride height pics :: 63 1/2 Fastback

Hello Norm,

Just curious if you still have the hubcaps in this pic? If you do, and since you're not running them anymore, was wondering if you'd be interested in parting with them? If so, I'm...

Re: Please post your ride height pics :: 63 1/2 Fastback

Thanks Norm,
Exactly the info I was looking for! I, too, will be replacing springs front and back this winter, and will probably deal with rims/tires at the same time. I was leaning toward old...

Anyone out there ever deal with MABBCO on engine rebuild kits/parts? Just researching options at the moment, and putting together a plan for a build in the future. Thanks!

Re: 352 to a Stroker

Thanks again, that's the kind of thing I'm looking for. Learning what can be done with the FE motor is interesting for sure. I sent Barry an e-mail prior to my post here, haven't heard back, but I'm...

Re: 352 to a Stroker

Thanks for the reply. I haven't decided on crankshaft, but have been leaning towards buying a complete stroker kit from Survival Motorsports. Probably a 3.980 stroke/416 cid. That may be too much...

Hello All,

Just purchased a sweet, totally stock '64 Galaxie 500. It's in great shape overall, but the shocks/springs seem a bit tired. It also has stock 14" rims. The stance of the car is...
